Waiting on Wednesday 10/29/14
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
At the beginning of this fall I really enjoyed E.L. Tettensor’s novel The Bloodbound which she wrote under the name Erin Lindsey. But I was actually first introduced to her work last year when I read her debut Darkwalker, the start of a new paranormal mystery series featuring a jaded detective trying to solve a disturbing case in an extraordinarily rich world. Master of Plagues is the sequel and I can’t wait to see what mysteries the protagonist Nicolas Lenoir will be tackling next.
Having barely escaped the clutches of the Darkwalker, Inspector Nicolas Lenoir throws himself into his work with a determination he hasn’t known in years. But his legendary skills are about to be put to the test. A horrific disease is ravaging the city—and all signs point to it having been deliberately unleashed.
With a mass murderer on the loose, a rising body count, and every hound in the city on quarantine duty, the streets of Kennian are descending into mayhem, while Lenoir and his partner, Sergeant Bran Kody, are running out of time to catch a killer and find a cure.
Only one ray of hope exists: the nomadic Adali, famed for their arcane healing skills, claim to have a cure. But dark magic comes at a price, one even the dying may be unwilling to pay. All that’s left to Lenoir is a desperate gamble. And when the ashes settle, the city of Kennian will be changed forever…”
